“Great location”
Reviewed December 19, 2007

The Breakers "Cabana" was OK. The cabana was a three storey townhouse with the main bedroom on the second floor and the kids loft on the third level. This particular cabana NO5 had no air conditioning- which was ok for us at the time because the weather was dismal but couldn't imagine it would be too comfortable in the heat of summer!! The position was absolute beachfront perfect!! literally out your door ten steps to the gate and you are on the beach. The only downside was the cabana was a little run down and had a lot of rising damp affecting walls and windows. The stairs leading to the top storey were extremely steep and wouldn't recommend for small children under 5. We stayed in the cabana for 6 nights and then moved into the main building for the last two nights.
The apartment in the main building was fantastic!
Apartment 19 Level 2 we would highly recommend it.. The apartment was clean, decorated with modern relaxed minimalistic decor. It had a spacious main living area which had fantastic views of the ocean/beachfront. We had wet tropical rainfall for the whole week but managed to do all the theme parks wearing ponchos in the rain!!! Our family had a ball
regardless and on the last day we awoke to sunshine would you believe it!!
Thanks to all members who expressed their opinions we took your advice and it worked so well. Merry Christmas to all

Stayed November 2007

We had a great holiday here with our two teenage kids 12 and 17. They loved the large spacious units. We stayed in Unit 42 which has just been fully refurnished - very trendy and welcoming. Our unit was airconditioned and had two balaconies looking out over the hinterland and the beach. No roads to cross to the beach and there is well provided BBQ which is great for sunset dinners. It was a really friendly place too which was noce more personal that a big hotel which our children liked. We learnt that each unit is privately owned so the quality may vary - ask to inspect your unit before you check in. Unit 42 was just fantastic!!

It is walking distance (10 Mins) to the nice cafes and resturants at Broadbeach. I also highly recommend the Chang Rai Thai resturant as well!

  • Liked — Well appointed unit and beach front - no roads to cross to the beach and BBQ on the beachfront
  • Disliked — Underground parking is great some spots are a bit tight - but we managed
  • Stayed October 2007, traveled with family
